Foot Pain

chicago foot pain

Foot pain can occur all over the foot or in one specific region such as the toe or heel. Chronic foot pain can be difficult to live with because it can affect your posture and walking. It is important to have foot pain evaluated by a physician as soon as possible so it can be treated without surgery. Here are some of the top causes of foot pain.

1. Injury

Most commonly foot pain occurs as a result of a fracture or ankle sprain. Achilles tendon injuries can cause foot pain also. Many sports injuries bring about foot pain as well.

2. Condition

There are several conditions that cause foot pain including diabetes, plantar fasciitis and tendonitis. Proper diagnosis of these conditions is especially important because they can lead to further complications.

3. Shoes

Wearing improperly fitted shoes is a sure cause of foot pain. This is most often the case with women, but men can unknowingly be wearing the wrong shoe size. High heels are a known source of foot pain.

4. Infection

Fungal infections and athletes’ foot are two infections that bring about foot pain. If you suspect an infection, seek medical care immediately to prevent it from spreading to other parts of your body.

2. Abnormalities

Foot abnormalities include ingrown toenails, heel spurs, bunions and hammertoes. These can be treated by nonsurgical means, but usually require surgery.
